Okay, Wordle 290 you went and did. You got me back for all of my sassing I did in Wordle 289. Though some of it is my fault as well. Choosing my pattern was like making a reservation for disaster.
I started with Adieu, as usual, and got a yellow A. I almost went with Woven. Maybe I kind of wish I had. However, I would have had other issues.
Next, Rowan which was my compromise between Stare and Woven. I really should have just kept with one of my words with S, T, and R. Stare would not have been efficient, but Roast would have been good. At least I knew where the A went and knew an N lurked in there somewhere.
Feeling completely sure that V was in there somewhere and that there had to be double A’s. I went with Naval. I was pumped as I saw the first two letters go green. Totally bummed and stunned when V went gray.
So, I tried Nasal and got a big nope. Natal worked. If I’d gone with Roast.
